Chateau Marsau 2011
Located a few miles east of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Marsau enjoys one of the highest in the terroir of the Cotes de Francs. A fine clay and limestone soil justifies the exclusive use of Merlot, unique blend of Chateau Marsau, planted on gentle slopes facing south. The work of the vineyard is managed with quality in mind, and the harvest is manual and programmed according to the optimal maturity of each plot.??Robert Parker once called Marsau: 'Petrus of Cotes de Francs'
Robert Parker:??89/100 Jancis Robinson:16/20
Tasting Note: A consistently well-made, fruit-driven wine dominated by Merlot, the 2011 Marsau offers up aromas of mocha, blueberries, sweet cherries, loamy soil, roasted herbs and hints of licorice and camphor. It possesses crisp acids, a medium-bodied mouthfeel and a soft, silky finish. Enjoy it in its first 5-6 years of life.
Castelforte Valpolicella Ripasso DOC 2016
Luca Maroni: 93/100
Tasting Note: Produced from Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes, with small amounts of other local grape varieties. Vinification takes place in Ganimede fermenters, which uses the carbon dioxide gas that is generated during fermentation, where the grape skins and wine are continuously mixed in order to extract color and tannins. During the winter, this Valpolicella is passed over the skins remaining from the production of Amarone, using the traditional Ripasso technique, which increases the alcohol, body, and perfumes of the wine. The resulting wine is aged partly in stainless steel and partly in oak casks for 12 months. Bold fruit aromas of Morello cherry and plump blackberry followed by light spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. The wine displays soft tannins with an alluring note of sweet spices on the finish.
